I still have problems using erlang package provided by esl. I am using
Kubuntu 13.10 and have the following line in

    deb http://binaries.erlang-solutions.com/debian saucy contrib

When running `sudo apt-get install erlang-src` I'm getting:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     erlang-src : Depends: erlang-base (>= 1:16.b.3-3) but 1:16.b.3 is
to be installed or
                           erlang-base-hipe (>= 1:16.b.3-3)

The command `sudo apt-get install --reinstall erlang-base` installs
"erlang-base 1:16.b.3".

I have cleaned by apt cache and updated the apt sources.
